Why we should participate in the 7th September strike

Dated: 24/08/10

Dear friends,
7th September Strike:

The General Body Meeting held at Nagpur had unanimously decided to participate in the strike action called by the Confederation of Central Government Employees & Workers. Now, the Confederation has decided to participate in the strike slated for 7th September, 2010, for which call was given by the Central Trade Unions at the Convention, held at New Delhi on 15th July, 2010. Accordingly our Association has served the strike notice to the Secretary, MoS & PI on 20th August 2010.
Association had also conducted a circulation meeting among the members of the Central Executive Committee of the Association and majority of them are supported in the joining of our Association in the 7th September strike. All Unit Secretaries therefore, are requested to please gear up the work for the successful conduct of the strike in their Units. The copy of the strike notice issued by us is enclosed. Please submit a copy of the same to the Head of Offices for their information before 07th September 2010.

As regards the demands, Confederation has added 5 more demands of common nature of Government Employees with the 5 demands put forth by the Central Trade Unions. In addition affiliates were empowered to add more demands of Department Specific as part II of the demands. Accordingly we had added two demands related to the Ministerial Staff which are given in Serial Number 11 & 12 of the charter of demands (Please see the charter of demands attached with the strike notice).

We are having the moral responsibility to raise our voice and record our concern against the onslaughts unleashed on working class. And also organised action is necessary to protect the achievements we got through relentless struggle. And as such we are wholeheartedly participating in the 7th September strike.

Friends, for us, it is immaterial how many other Associations of the Department are participating in the strike. Irrespective of the other Association's participation we go to participate as we have decided the same with majority CEC consents. Taking a stern decision and the implementation of the same in the same coin will always have clear result.

In fine, I re-iterate that the 7th September strike is a crucial movement for safeguarding the achievement we got so far. It will help to strengthen the unity of the working class as a whole, which is essential to resist the capitalist attack on the working class and common people. On behalf of the Central Executive Committee of the Association, I appeal to all Units to conduct Unit meeting immediately after the receipt of this letter in its own seriousness and start preparations for a successful strike. Do not fear. Do not hesitate or get confused. Take a clear and positive stand towards the strike on 7, September 2010 and compel the Government to accept the demands.
Description on the issues raised has been given in the confederation circular which is given below. All Unit Secretaries are requested to download it and circulate amonst the members and other staff members.

Joining of Multi Tasking Staff and stenographers in our Association:

The Ministry vide letter No. B-120111/2/2010-Ad III dated 26/02/10 had asked the Group C staff (now Multi tasking Staff) to give member ship to other group C staff viz LDC, UDC etc in their Association. According to said letter the Ministry has defined distinct category as “Ministerial Staff Group C” (including all group C posts in Ministerial Staff) for negotiation of service Association. This rule is applicable to us also. Thus the Association has decided to extend membership to Multi tasking Staff and Stenographers also in our Association. All Units are therefore requested to get the membership form in annexure A filled by them and send the same to Association Hqrs for further action. The individual consent for deduction of annual subscription also be obtained from them and handed over to the HO with recommendation of the Unit Secretary. A copy of the individual consent may be sent to the Association Head Quarters alongwith the Annexure A.

With warm regards,
Yours Sincerely

(TKR Pillai)
General Secretary
